I found the M/C very good actually. The easiest out off all the past papers. Here are my answers (which i think i have gotten full marks) which have been cross-checked with another person, so there may be mistakes.

1. C 11. B 21. C
2. D 12. D 22. B
3. C 13. A 23. B
4. D 14. A 24. A

Any chance of someone with paper 1 scanning it in?

BTW here is paper 2:

I hear that.

### #1012072007 Paper 1 Q9(a)

Posted by on 19 May 2008 - 02:26 PM in Mathematics

f(x) = 3x - x^3

(a) Find the exact values where the graph of y = f(x) meets the x- and y-axes.

Ive found where it crosses the y-axis by making the x = 0 and got it as (0,0) which is correct.

However how do u find where it meets the x-axis? (apart from 0,0)

### #101194Logs

Posted by on 18 May 2008 - 05:22 PM in Mathematics

I need a couple of things cleared up:

is 10^x the inverse of log(base10)x ?

is e^x the inverse of ln?

Is log(baseE) the same as ln?

is this the distance between two points question or am i looking at the wrong paper?

yeah. You find BA dont you then use the distance formula?

### #1011412006 paper II Q10(b)

QUOTE(Marcus @ May 16 2008, 04:59 PM)
and are inverse functions of each other, ie

y = can be changed to x = and vice versa
you started with

divide through by 25

take inverse cosines of both sides ie, use the rule above

then move the 1.29 to the other side

hope this helps

Brilliant. Get it now thanks

Well ive got the downloaded version off the SQA website and it gives the answer as C.

Ive done it as well and I got C.

### #1011382006 paper II Q10(b)

Posted by on 16 May 2008 - 03:50 PM in Mathematics

Im stuck on this question.

Ive looked at a solution to it and it goes like this:

25cos(x-1.29) = 1

then to

x = + 1.29

im confused how this is done. Any help?

### #100700More Help

Posted by on 21 January 2008 - 08:32 PM in Mathematics

QUOTE(Marcus @ Jan 21 2008, 08:06 PM)
hmmmm, I got both 50 and 10, is there something in the question that ruled out 10?, and I think you ruled out the one >120 too early, make sure you don't ignore answers that are out of range until the very end, they may end up coming back into range

Ok what you have is right, the graph shows it hits 0 twice before 60 and so that P points to the second one so that makes sense. Thanks!

QUOTE(Marcus @ Jan 21 2008, 07:55 PM)
Are you sure you have the correct equation there...I'm getting 2 answers

yea i got 2 too, but one is >120 so i crossed that one out.

But the one i had left was 10, and the answer is 50

### #100695More Help

Posted by on 21 January 2008 - 07:37 PM in Mathematics

Yeah im again stuck at a question:

(b) Determine the exact value of the
x-coordinate of P, the point where
the graph intersects the x-axis

I have figured out the eq of function is: y = 2Sin(3x)-1 0<x<120

Any ideas? Thanks

Thanks a lot, its a bit late for me to be thinking about maths right now, so ill try it in the morning

### #100681Need Help with Question

Posted by on 19 January 2008 - 04:55 PM in Mathematics

I'm also having problems with this Question:

11. (a) Express f(x) = (sq root)3 cos x + sin x in the form kcos (x – a), where k > 0 and
0 < a < pi/2

(b) Hence or otherwise sketch the graph of y = f(x) in the interval 0 ≤ x ≤ 2pi

Thanks again.

### #100680Need Help with Question

Posted by on 19 January 2008 - 04:16 PM in Mathematics

Seems a really simple question, but I can's seem to be able to work it out:

A function f is defined by the formula f(x) = 3x – x3.

Find the exact values where the graph of y = f(x) meets the x- and y-axes
